‘We need to talk about the Vikings’ – IMT Autumn Talks

1st November 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


‘We need to talk about the Vikings’, by Dr Keith Ruiter, University of Suffolk

It may surprise you to learn just how much Viking-Age history is all around us here in Ipswich, Suffolk, and East Anglia generally. It may also come as a shock to realise how topical some of that history is today.

From migration, to rapid urbanisation, and from infrastructural projects, to international law and diplomacy, Dr Ruiter will be highlighting the connections, hybridity, and complexity of Viking-Age peoples in this region, as well as some of the ways that their societies laid the foundations for important developments like the later medieval Hanseatic League.

This talk hosted in association with the Ipswich Hansa Group.

Talks take place at the University of Suffolk Waterfront Building in Ipswich at 7.30pm. Entry is £4.50 (£3.50 for members) and includes the opportunity to chat to the speaker over refreshments afterwards. Card or Cash Payments accepted, pre-booking not required.
